Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: GD forum posting consensus?

Whereas the multiband/multitopic LMA aka etree forum already has a few groundrules for posting by consensus, this newer band-specific one has been more open so far against the time GD fans do have a consensus about posting different topics.

Generally, people who post to LMA about politics are directed to a more appropriate forum (there are a few more political ones onsite for example). But many other GD forums do devolve into political discussions at times, so maybe it's more standard for this forum after all. Y'all can have it that way, or if you want it more music-focused, y'all can have a consensus to direct political chat elsewhere.

BTW I did just remove one new thread, a multipost by a person who appeared just to be posting copies of his essay across the internet in various forums (though not even into other GD forums). It's possible given this site's "weight" (example, google "mad at israel" at the moment and you get a top 10 hit from here), that multiple political postings here may attract other non-Deadhead politicos to this forum. Is that what y'all want?

I've seen a couple posts now along the lines of "Shouldn't it be about the Dead/music?" so it's time to ask the question.

Thanks, a moderator

How fast can I type "hell no" don't need no stinking politics. Unless...it relates to political related legalities regarding file sharing or Dead specific topics like Rex Foundation. All in all it seems like there's a fairly well rounded group that contributes...and but for an odd interloper stirring the pot, we even disagree in a proper manner.

I'm assuming you are talking about the "Jack Grimes" post...what in the world is that all about? Crazy world.

It is about the band and the music-

Politics only if elated to song lyrics and/or political events- Like Wavy Gravy talking about the bombing of the hospital in the vietnam war during an interlude on a show here
